“Inflated Prices for a Basic Hotel”
Reviewed 6 September 2005

I failed to see the reason for such high prices at this hotel. It was one of the most, if not the most, expensive in the Eastgate area, yet didn't offer anything that the other hotels didn't.

It sits in a great location right off Route 32 and I-275 and has plenty of parking available. It is also a very short walk to Eastgate Mall for shopping, and Wendy's and O'Charleys for dining. Within a few minutes drive is almost unlimited shopping and dining outlets. The indoor pool and jacuzzi is very nice and clean and the lobby is nice to sit in and listen to the fountains and waterfall. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfy. They came with complimentary high speed internet access and a good selection of channels on the TV. No continental breakfast is offered.

The reason I wasn't satisfied with the hotel is because they were charging an average of $20-30 more per night than surrounding hotels and didn't offer anything above and beyond. The other hotels even had a complimentary breakfast included! Overall, it is your basic Holiday Inn, nothing more. When I head back I'll probably choose one of the other hotels close by.

If you are needing a place to stay overnight this place is ok but nothing special in fact very basic! We stayed here on one occasion for two nights and the place was clean, and does have a swimming pool but at alittle over a hundred dollars a night on the weekends we found that it just is not worth the money. The restaurants that are close by are for the most part very basic the only strong point is the Eastgate Mall area which the mall has been updated and is nice.

I have stayed here twice - for some reason, medical boards are always given here. This is a rather large Holiday Inn with a very large meeting room / ballroom. There is a large, pleasant central atrium, which served as a nice break area between exam sessions in the ballroom. The rooms show their age a bit, and the decor is typically bland with rather dated faux-oak furniture. However, the rooms are large and reasonably clean, the staff is helpful and friendly, and the hotel is very close to I-275. This is a full service hotel, with room service etc., and it is right next to a shopping mall. The dining room food is typically bland hotel food but very reasonably priced. A decent if totally forgettable place to stay for business.

I just spent two nights in this hotel with a large group junior high kids and their chaperones for a conference. When we arrived, the conference leader said this was the "friendliest hotel in the world". I didn't think much about it and thought they were just being courteous to their host hotel. But, after my stay I would have to agree. I didn't meet one staff person, from housekeeping to the restaurant to the desk, who wasn't extremely courteous, friendly, polite and eager to help.
I've been to a number of hotels where the accommodations were very good, clean, pleasant, etc., just like this one, but I have not been to one with such a friendly and helpful staff.
